ANADIGICS' WiFi Front-End Solutions Specified on Leading Reference Designs to Start Production Shipments in First Quarter of 2013

High Performance WiFi FEICs Offer Complete RF Front-End Functionality to Enable 802.11n and 802.11ac Devices with Longer Battery Life, Greater Range and Higher Data Throughput

WARREN, N.J., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

ANADIGICS, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAD), a world leader in radio frequency (RF) solutions, today introduced four new front-end integrated circuits (FEICs) for 802.11n and 802.11ac WiFi applications. The Company's FEICs provide an industry-leading combination of integration, efficiency, and linearity to minimize time-to-market, increase battery-life, and maximize throughput for mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks, and gaming systems. These solutions have been selected by multiple leading reference design companies and are gaining OEM traction worldwide.

"ANADIGICS is raising the bar in WiFi RF front-end integration and performance," said Dave Cresci, vice president of WiFi Products at ANADIGICS. "By combining our high performance PA, LNA, and RF switch in a compact, low-profile package, we are enabling manufacturers to develop the next-generation of mobile devices with extended battery-life and greater connectivity speeds. The advantages of our new FEICs have been validated by multiple wins on major WiFi reference designs and we expect to start high-volume production shipments in the first quarter of 2013."

The new family of WiFi FEICs utilize ANADIGICS' exclusive InGaP-Plus™ technology and patented design architectures to combine a power amplifier (PA), low-noise amplifier (LNA), and RF switch on a single die. This level of integration reduces space requirements and simplifies RF front-end design. ANADIGICS' WiFi FEICs provide exceptional error vector magnitude (EVM) and noise figure performance, which enables ultra-high data throughput and connectivity over greater range. These solutions also deliver outstanding efficiency with low current consumption to conserve valuable battery-life in mobile applications.
